International Conference

Prion Diseases of Domestic Livestock

BSE was first recognised in 1986, and was followed 10 years later by the announcement in 1996 of

the first cases of variant CJD in humans. This conference marks key anniversaries of these

significant events by:-

celebrating some of the successes in addressing the national and global challenges

posed by BSE and related prion diseases, and

demonstrating the positive impact that science has had on the formulation and

implementation of national controls and trade rules that enable cost-effective risk

reduction for both animals and man.

The conference follows immediately after the General Assembly of the OIE in Paris in order to

facilitate onward travel to London. It will however also be of interest to a wide range of

governmental enforcement agencies and food industry companies that aim to guarantee the safety

of food products in the face of public concerns about the dangers presented by prion diseases of

cattle and small ruminants.

Further details of conference and social programmes will be announced as soon as possible.
